People do all sorts of crazy things in the name of love, but there aren’t many who build a TARDIS in 10 days. Nick Clements did just that so that he could use it as part of a wonderfully nerdy marriage proposal.

He put together a time-lapse video so you can see the build in progress, and it even includes the proposal which takes place right in the doorway.

While most Doctor Who fans would love to own a full sized TARDIS replica, this 1:6 scale version of the Tenth Doctor’s TARDIS is probably the next best thing.

The model is roughly 20″ tall and is made to go with the Big Chief 1:6 scale Doctor Who figures. Other 1:6 scale figures would work of course, and I suppose you could always dress up as the Doctor yourself and reenact tiny TARDIS scenes from the episode Flatline.

The model includes LEDs, swappable interiors, and recreates the TARDIS in incredible detail. In addition, if you order from Big Chief directly, you get a bonus – a pair of pjs and slippers for the 1:6 scale Tenth Doctor figure (if you own it) or you could put them on another figure. I bet it would look cool on Stan Lee.

Either way, cool replica, fun extras and Doctor Who awesomeness. Sounds good to me.

This Doctor Who lamp is just the thing for letting the Doctor know that you’re ready and waiting for him to show up in that magical blue box. It’s a triangular lamp that features the TARDIS going through the wormhole on the front and back, but the villains are along for the ride, too. A Weeping Angel, Cyberman, and Dalek are on the sides of the lamp and project their images onto surrounding walls.

The lamp is handmade from acrylic and measures 9″ on each side. It uses just a standard C7 bulb and is made to order so it’ll take about 4-6 weeks to have this Whovian lamp on your table.

These gorgeous TARDIS umbrellas will keep you and your companions dry with a 23″ wide canopy that opens with the touch of a button. Licensed from the BBC, choose an umbrella with the classic 1960 police box design or the TARDIS landing on an alien landscape.

Both designs are available for pre-order and will be perfect for that rainy day in London. Check out all the details after the “Geronimo!”

I try not to be a pack rat, but sometimes I just need more space to hold all my stuff. Thankfully, Etsy shop owner birdsmouth heard my cries across the galaxy and made this awesome TARDIS cabinet. Standing 4.5′ tall and 2′ wide, it can hold a tun of stuff without being overbearingly big.

That’s not even the best part. Utilizing every square inch, this box really is bigger on the inside with shelving on the TARDIS doors as well. The wood box is hand painted, glazed and finished with an oil varnish for an authentic, weathered look of the 10th Doctor’s police box.

Check out pics of the inside after the jump.

CES brings out all the coolest gadgets, and these wireless speakers from Massive Audio are no exception. They work with an iOS or Android app and can be paired together so you could have a small fleet of Daleks playing your favorite tunes. The design is wonderfully detailed and even includes a glowing blue Dalek eye and a lit TARDIS light.

Even better, there are sound effects so you get 6 TARDIS noises and the Daleks will yell “Obey!” and “Exterminate!” jut like the real deal. There are also two different TARDIS-themed headphones and, if you were at the show, there was a life-size Dalek roaming about the booth blasting tunes.

According to Mashable, Pricing will be $120 for the TARDIS speaker or $150 for the Dalek with a “Dalek Sec” variant that’s black for $120. Headphones will run for $60 wired or $120 wireless. Expect to see them go on sale in late spring.

nerd viewing party

We have a fun update on our story about LeAnn Moder and the TARDIS that earned her a letter from her Homeowners Association.

After receiving the letter, LeAnn decided that, instead of putting her TARDIS away, she’d host a Doctor Who viewing party instead.

We also have a little bit more info on LeAnn’s HOA and the overall reaction to the letter she received. While some people on the internet got a bit outraged (outraged on the internet? NEVER!), LeAnn herself isn’t upset at all. In fact, she loves her neighborhood. She’s taken all of this in stride and with good humor.

All in all, I’d say things worked out pretty well and, as it turns out, Pinellas County, FL has some pretty devoted Who fans.

You can see her comments and pictures from the event after the break.

This is an excerpt from a letter sent to LeAnn Moder who lives in Lexington, Florida. She had a full-size TARDIS built for her wedding (where are those pictures LeAnn?) and the homeowners association took issue with her having the blue box in her driveway. The expectation is that she will remove this eyesore posthaste, but her response to them is priceless. She said on her Facebook page:

I’m slightly amused by this….I maintain this is a mode of transportation, therefore I have every right to park it in my driveway.

We couldn’t agree more.

tardis bed 1

If you have regular visitors but would like to utilize the space in your guest room when it’s not being occupied, a Murphy bed is the way to go.  But one possible problem: they’re not cheap. When blogger Stubbs of The Stubby Thumb was put off by Murphy bed prices, she decided to make her own and to give it some Doctor Who flair. I mean, the TARDIS is possibly the best choice for a hideaway bed.

She crafted the entire bed herself and while she mentions it’s not an exact match to any of the TARDISes seen in the series, her design had to fit the space available. I think we’ll let any inaccuracies slide on this one. In fact, I hope she expands the Doctor Who theme to include the entire room.

See more pictures of the bed (including the awesome Tenth Doctor bedding) after the break.

tardis bed 2

I have no idea who actually built this bed, but I do know I want one and I want it now.

Seriously, the BBC needs to license this TARDIS bed and sell it at Ikea or something. Because I need it in my life.
